Kathmandu: The Hungary-based airline Wizz Air is gearing up to operate flights to the Gautam Buddha International Airport in Bhairahawa from September.

The second international airport in the country came into operation on May 16, marking the Buddha Purnima. Currently, Jazeera Airways has been operating its flight at the airport.

Various international airlines are eager to launch their services from the newly-operated airport. Wizz Air will roll out its 190-seat capacity aircraft known for its spaciousness, according to Wizz Air’s Nepal’s official dealer GSA Society International Travel Chairperson Ravi Chandra Singh.

The ultra-low-cost airline will operate flights from and to Bhairahawa and Abu Dhabi, added Singh. The airline is penetrating Nepali’s sky with its Airbus 321 Neo Series aircraft, the first aircraft of this model to fly in Nepal’s sky, claimed Wizz Air.

Singh shared, “Tourism is the basic alternative in our country. We are planning to launch and expand our services in Nepal by targeting religious tourism.”
